Event#5 - Praz Bansi and Dave “DocSands” Sands lead $1.5k NLHE

Wednesday, 2 June 2010

What a difference an extra $500 makes. While Event #3, the $1,000 NLHE tournament, saw turbocharged structures and a distinct lack of either interest or effort from pros, Event #5 – $1,500 NLHE – has seen a host of big names soaring to the top of the chip counts.

Most notable is Briton and Hit Squaddie Praz Bansi, who is at the time of writing in third place, sitting pretty on over 700,000 in chips. David Sands is a couple of spots below him; the savvier among you will recognise him as online tournament whizz DocSands.

Notably in the field is Jon Myung, who Bluff Europe blogger and metalhead Matt Perry informs us is the bass player for progressive metal band Dream Theater, “or at least some guy with the same name as him.” Newsworthy? Who knows?

As we type, Praz Bansi has just boosted his stack by getting three streets of value with a flopped flush. His fellow Hit Squaddie James Akenhead is still alive in the 2-7 Lowball event also, we wish them both luck.
